Chester: Cost Savings Expected With Blue Bag Switch

Chester is gearing up to start saving roughly $60,000 by switching blue bag processors. The municipality recently approved the recommendation to send their recyclable material from the Annapolis Valley to Bayers Lake. The municipality currently pays about $130 per ton. The new provider in Bayers Lake is expected to charge just under $70 per ton. Warden Allen Webber expects some additional cost savings.

Webber says it good news to find a more cost-effective solution. The new agreement is with the Halifax Regional Municipality.
